RA petition causing a stir in VT's House of Representatives
Repent America's online petition calling for the impeachment of Judge Edward Cashman is receiving particular attention by some members of the Vermont House of Representatives.
Rep. Loren T. Shaw had this to say about RA's petition calling for Judge Cashman's impeachment: "I will do everything within my power to make it happen!"
Another Vermont state representative has offered to speak with RA about what is being done to address the actions of Judge Cashman, and stated: "I appreciate the respectful wording of your Petition and thank you for your efforts to call America to repentance."
Other responses were not so favorable...
George C. Cross, the chair of the House Education Committee, had these words of advice for one Pennsylvania grandmother who signed the petition: "I would suggest that you spend your time worrying about Sen. Santorum and leave Vermont's problems to those of us who work on them daily!"
It is our hope and prayer that other members of the legislature will follow Rep. Shaw's lead by taking the necessary steps to have Judge Cashman removed from the bench for sentencing a child rapist to only 60 days in prison. Please pray to this end.
If you have not already, please sign the petition.
